"An ambiguously coded figure, a source of both erotic anxiety and corrupt desire, the literary vampire is one of the most powerful archetypes bequeathed to us from the imagination of the nineteenth century." ~ page 2 introduction to Blood Read: The Vampire as Metaphor in Contemporary Culture
Intellectual Vampire Quote
"If the vampire is an other, he or she was always a figure in whom one could find one's self...the despicable as well as the defiant, the shameful as well as the unashamed, the loathing of oddness as well as pride in it." ~ Richard Dyer
Do you struggle out of bed each morning and sway lifelessly across the room, mouth agape, arms hanging slack, murmuring unintelligibly? Well, take heart: you’re not alone! But these other staggering, limp, perpetually drowsy folks just happen to be zombies—and it turns out they can teach us a lot about enjoying life. And only here, between the covers of this book, will you learn their secrets to happiness. Learn how to slow down and move at your own pace, become your own boss, and just devour those irritating people who get in your way. And there’s more, because zombies can offer no-nonsense advice on love, playing to your strengths, and on becoming more adaptable.
Here's a hilarious book that explores how to have a better life by acting like a zombie. Too funny. I read throught he book for some laughs, it's humor you have to read to believe but it'll make your day. Especially if you are a zombie fan.
Zombies are the new in thing I guess. Not my cup of tea (I am a diehard vamp loving girl with a second place werewolf crush followed by a close third demon lover obession) but I suppose I can see some the appeal. Zombies don't think too much and they're all about action.
Plus they love girls with brains... too bad their only interest is the brains-as in they'll be enjoying how good they taste.
